Coming out of hibernation

I have been on my thyroid medication for about a month now and wow, I can feel the difference. It's amazing. I have energy to do more than just survive and it feels so good! This morning I pulled my running shoes out of hibernation and went for a little jog-- something I haven't done since November, 2009. I was pleasantly surprised that I was able to jog for more than 2 minutes at a time. It was painful towards the end, but I was rewarded with a beautiful sunrise and the opportunity to see lots of cardinals, blue-jays, and some gorgeous trees in blossom. I have set the goal to run another half-marathon in October. I will be 35 in November (just a couple days after the race), and I want to enter the second half of my 30th decade as strong and healthy as I can be.
